An Architectural Family Home That Sits by the Ocean (House Tour)

Located on the cliffs above Bronte beach in Sydney and with far-reaching views of the Pacific Ocean, this architectural home was designed by Luigi Roselli Architects and Alwill Interiors to be a “place for peace”.

The 1970s brick family home that previously stood on the site did not fully encompass the potential of this beautiful location. In creating the new family home, Luigi Roselli Architects and Alwill Interiors sought to design an architectural coastline house that is filled with light and has many opportunities to enjoy the views from within its interior.

As a house that carries over four levels, the stairwell was a key part of the architectural design. Luigi Roselli Architects clad the stairwell and lift in glass blocks, which allows it to become a sculptural lightwell, glowing in the centre of the family home and inviting interaction and use throughout the home’s interior. The black grout between the blocks gives it a look that is reminiscent of classic lattice windows, and this is echoed by the gridded screens on the family home’s facade.

The interiors of the architectural home designed by Alwill Interiors play off the cooler aspects of the sea view, using smoky timbers to bring out the warmth in the rammed earth and stone base of the architectural house.

For the homeowners, who moved from a more compact lifestyle in Singapore, the architectural and interior design creates many opportunities for meditative moments as they watch the waves crash below and take in the distant blue horizon.
